Alabama Crimson Tide increased its record to 21-14 all-time against Florida Gators.

– The loss snapped Florida’s nation’s best and school-record 22-game winning streak, which will go down as the fourth-best in Southeastern Conference history.

– The last time the Gators lost a game outside of Gainesville, FL, was the Capitol One Bowl on Jan. 1, 2008, when Florida lost 41-35 to the Michigan Wolverines. Alabama’s 32 points were the most allowed by the Gators’ defense since that game (41).

– Head coach Urban Meyer is now 2-2 against the Crimson Tide, and Florida’s two-game Georgia Dome winning streak was snapped with the loss. The Gators are now 6-3 all-time in the building.

– Having only allowed one rushing touchdown in its previous six games, Florida gave up three to Alabama running back Mark Ingram on Saturday.

– Junior safety Ahmad Black recorded his first career sack during the game.

– Senior quarterback Tim Tebow‘s interception to Javier Arenas was the first he had thrown since the Mississippi State Bulldogs game on Oct. 24.

– 75,514 fans attended the 2009 SEC Championship, the fourth-most in history.
